Willes: It wasn't playoff hockey but Canucks punched the time clock and got the job done

theprovince.com - Apr 10, 2015

Following the excitement of the Canucks' overtime win over the L.A. Kings on Monday and the subsequent events which landed them a playoff spot, there was every reason to think Thursday night's game would be a bigger letdown than the Star Wars prequels.

Jannik Hansen "This game was not like the playoffs, I think there was more scoreboard watching for a lot of people. It's an important two points and we're still playing for home ice. But as far as playoff intensity I don't know how many hits were thrown tonight. It's different once the playoffs come."
Henrik Sedin "It's something you need on the power play, the threat up top, Even if you take him away it opens up the down-low play. It's made a big difference."

Gallagher: Canucks choke on another cupcake opponent

Luca Sbisa "We took a little too much time with the puck and the forwards didn’t come far down enough to support us, So we had a hard time coming out and because of that they won the puck a lot. They sent a message in the first five minutes by coming hard. It’s unacceptable at this time of year."
Yannick Weber "We’re finding it doesn’t seem to matter whether teams played the night before, they come hard every night in this league no matter what, We have to be a lot better than we were tonight."

theprovince.com - Mar 2, 2015

There was something about the matchup which almost seemed unfair and there were huge stretches of Sunday's game which looked like Godzilla versus Bambi.
